KROKMITĖN: NEW ALBUM HETA AVAILABLE AS FREE DOWNLOAD NOW
October 25th 2016
Montréal-based Death Metal studio project KROKMITĖN have officially released their third album HETA today. True to the formation's ideology, HETA is available for free in high quality audio and video and can be downloaded right now at the band's headquarter, www.krokmiten.com.
This new 36-minute non-stop piece was recorded and mixed by Simlev (KROKMITĖN guitarist/vocalist) at the Krokmitėn Studio in Montréal, Canada and mastered by Studio Engineer J-F Dagenais (KATAKLYSM, MALEVOLENT CREATION, MISERY INDEX) at JFD Studio in TEXAS, USA. This time around the opus is also available in the form of a playthrough video featuring the actual guitar and drum tracking of the studio recording for the entire album. To complete HETA, Simlev recruited drummer Guyot Bégin-Benoit for the project. Guyot played on critics and fans' favorite The Aura, Montreal's BEYOND CREATION's first album.
Frontman Simlev had this to reveal about this third offering: "I wrote this one fairly quickly. After the lengthy Omicron-Omega that clocks in at 50 minutes, I felt like writing a condensed album this time. It is jam-packed with primal pounding riffs, it's hardly experimental but still somewhat unpredictable. I took a simplistic approach with the recording and mixing as well. I wanted to try trading off the wall-of-sound approach used on the two previous albums, for a more defined and clear tone."
"The premise for the album goes like this: In their quest to prove the existence of the elusive H particle and to know more about dark energy and dark matter, 10,000 scientists and engineers from over 100 countries gathered together to build the largest single machine our world has ever seen; a gargantuan particle collider powerful enough to create and disrupt stars on galactic levels. Little did they know that they were ripping apart the very basic structures of space and time, thus allowing an unknown insidious force to slither through and tap into the populations most primal instincts, to violently unleash them and ultimately lead mankind to extinction!" adds Simlev.
